On the other hand, some legends created unimaginable facts that are uncommon. And those uncommon facts are still unknown to large amount of cricket lovers.

Here we are today with some of those lesser-known cricket facts that can blow your mind. Have a look:

When duck followed ‘Little Master’ Sunil Gavaskar thrice in his test career on the first ball

Sunil Gavaskar

The people of 70’s and 80’s better understand the beauty of this Indian batsman. Sunil Gavaskar, widely known as the Little Master of India of his time, made some fantastic records in his career. Gavaskar, known to be one of the greatest opening batsmen, was the first one to score centuries in both innings of a test match thrice. The Mumbaiker was also the first batsman to score 10,000 runs in test cricket. This Indian masterpiece was a part of the side at that time when the West-Indian bowlers were not less than giant killers who used to bowl consecutive bouncers and that too at very high speed.

Due to the unpredictability of the game, it is difficult for every player to perform in each match & that is what happened with him, when he got out three times off the first ball in a test match. It seems to be unbelievable by seeing his records but that’s true. The bowlers who dismissed him were: Geoff Arnold (Edgbaston, 1974), Malcolm Marshall (Kolkata, 1984) and Imran Khan (Jaipur, 1987).
